5-step recipe for social media success:
1) Define your niche
2) Rarely deviate from your niche
3) Consistently post about your niche
4) Make your content easy to consume
5) Your audience tells you what they want to see, not the other way around

This essay is one of my all-time favourites!!
Nathan talks about a model he uses to think about wealth-creation. It’s a quite long essay, but worth reading multiple times!
We could outline the progression to mastering a musical instrument, so we should also be able to do the same with earning a living.
What lessons do you need to learn to go from odd jobs around the neighborhood to owning a real estate empire? From working as a freelancer to selling your own digital products? What about from working at Wendy’s to owning a SaaS company earning over $1 million per month? That last one is my own path.
There’s a reliable progression that anyone can take to earn more and build wealth. In fact, I like to think of it as a series of ladders side by side. Each one can climb to different heights in both the quality of business and potential earnings.
